This is like the 'Horizon Report' for museums. 

Jennifer Ryan's curator insight, November 10, 2013 2:04 PM

This is right up my alley. Looking forward to reading about trends and impacts.

Erica Bilder's curator insight, November 15, 2013 4:11 AM

I have nothing to add to Robin Good's terrific insights:

 Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Picture these scenarios:
 

The Victoria & Albert Museum, its collections depleted by massive repatriation, becomes a travel & tourism guide and international affairs ambassador in an increasingly globalized community
 The Freud Museum, in the spirit of its namesake, becomes a provider of mental retreat and therapy (I wonder if the docents will be licensed psychoanalysis?)

These, according to the 40-page report “Museums in a Digital Age” from Arups, may actually be some of the likely new profiles of prestigious museums 25 years from now.  

 

The report projects that:

 

"...future museums will see personalised content, new levels of sustainability and a visitor experience extended beyond present expectations of time and space."

 

A rising desire among audiences to shape their own cultural experiences (“Collaborative Curation”)
 The opportunity for museum to become “curators of experiences” that extend beyond the boundaries of traditional exhibits or programs, or beyond the walls of the museum itself.

 

Source: http://futureofmuseums.blogspot.it/2013/11/museums-in-future-view-from-across-pond.html ;

 The idea of "collaborative curation" of museum collections by the actual users-visitors, is particularly fascinating.  "Just as current consumer trends shift towards collaborative consumption, in the future, museums may employ new patterns of collaborative curation,allowing for individually curated experiences and giving the public greater control over both content and experience.
Increased visitor participation will allow people themselves to reinvent the museum experience, enabling content that can adapt to the preferences of users in real-time." 

 

My comment: If you are a curator and are interested in exploring and understanding what the future of large collections and museums may look like and which forces are going to be driving such changes, this is a good report to read.

 

Insightful. Inspiring 8/10

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, November 6, 2013 2:06 PM

Love the idea of teaching kids digital "self-defense," rather than focusing on erecting barriers they might see as challenges to overcome, or "problems" to solve. They not only need to guard against bullies and predators, but also that  that they have a "digital footprint" that will follow them throughout their lives. 

 

Tina Jameson's curator insight, November 7, 2013 2:07 PM

Prepare students for their online future: this freely available online tool allows students to 'play' and work their way through different levels, building up vital understanding of 'digital footprints' and cyber safety in the process.  Seems to be aimed at a junior primary to middle school level.

 

This article explains how one Librarian has used the tool successfully, and provides links to the 'Digital Passport' program.

Llandrillo Library's curator insight, November 29, 2013 2:02 AM

Having to earn a digital passport or badge before you can get access to email or laptops/tablets in school is a great way of spreading the digital citizenship message and making sure everyone has had the same standard of training. This would be useful approach across all sectors, not just primary.
